Occasionally I come across a new idea or philosophy that I need to bounce off somebody. To discuss the merits/demerits or whatever. Let’s say I pick a friend nearby to discuss it with, this may be because I’m boring but oftentimes you can see their eyes glaze over and maybe they pick up their phone while acting like they are listening. And you can tell they are not interested in this new idea for whatever reason.
The beauty of the internet is that you can just put on it, an idea on your mind. To someone halfway across the world, this idea seems interesting and they want to discuss it with you. If you are lucky, they have been looking for someone to discuss it with too! It’s pretty neat to be able to get to discuss ideas with people that are truly interested in it!
